Foundations of Leadership – Integrity and Authenticity

How the Most Important Approach to Leading People is Possessing an Unshakable Foundation of Integrity and Self-awareness

Today we welcome Sue Galatz, a longtime Nike leader in business and strategy to our leadership show.

Sue is an innovator, thought leader, and a process genius. A chemical engineer by education, she uses a creative discipline to bring new ideas to life.

I first met Sue during my early days at Nike. She has remained an incredible influence on my leadership life, and a good friend and mentor. I pattern my organizational leadership after the lessons I learned from working with Sue at Nike. I am thrilled to have Sue join our show.
